the first step "what we know" cd/lp

The first official full length from TFS. This one WILL be a hardcore classic.

Pressing summary:
- CD (still in press)
1st press: 20 test presses, 135 red/white splatter, 235 solid pink, 850 solid blue (250 have limited "pre-covers")
2nd press: 215 blue/black swirl, 885 solid blue w/"II" b-side label


20 test presses were made and come with the normal LP jackets because we had a few extras lying around. A-side label is hand numbered out of 20, the b-side label is stamped with a RED Rivalry stamp. Some test pressings are personalized with a hand written name and/or message on the label.

135 on RED W/WHITE SPLATTER VINYL (Sound & Fury 2006 Press)

135 were pressed on red/white splatter vinyl. Originally these were going to be used for a record release show, but that never materialized. So instead, we saved them until SOUND AND FURY FEST 2006 and sold them at the fest.

235 on SOLID PINK VINYL (Pre-Order color)

235 were pressed on SOLID PINK vinyl and were only available by pre-ordering directly from These sold out very quickly and were strictly first come, first serve.

855 on SOLID BLUE VINYL - 250 w/Pre-Cover, 605 Regular

855 were pressed on SOLID BLUE vinyl. 250 of them came with a limited "pre-cover" (see below). The remaining 605 copies have regular covers.

250 of the SOLID BLUE VINYL came with this limited "pre-cover" that was sold on their West Coast Tour with GO IT ALONE in February 2006 around Rivalry Showcase #3.



215 of the second pressing were pressed on BLUE/BLACK swirl vinyl. B-side labels have a small "II" printed on the label.

885 on SOLID BLUE VINYL w/"II" on b-side label

885 were pressed on SOLID BLUE vinyl for the 2nd pressing. B-side labels have a small "II" printed on the label, that is the only difference between the 1st pressing copies on SOLID BLUE vinyl.

2nd pressing on blue has the "II" b-side label
